To use a TV as a monitor for productivity purposes 4:4:4, 4K @ 60Hz is a must, 10 bit color depth not so much. Maybe for a video and photo editing, I don't know.
You are absolutely correct.

You're paying a $200 premium for a Displayport connector compared to the equivalent TV.

I got this from the last deal. Compared to a TV, the text clarity is slightly better. But major pros in terms of convenience. This has USB-C port with PD, USB hub, DP and HDMI. The LG software with split-screen works great as well. The speakers on this are decent. Its light enough, due to the stand but you would need a large desk but it does free up space in the middle which for me was useful to keep my wireless charger.

Overall, for me it was worth paying $200 premium over a TV, but may not be for everyone depending on how much these features are worth it to you.
There are a lot of little things that add up to making a monitor better than a TV for productivity. When I used a TV as a monitor I would have periodic annoying glitches and lag with the mouse and never have these with a 43" computer monitor. The monitor is also easier on my eyes with a matte screen and flicker free. I would get sore/tired eyes using a TV as a monitor. I'd never go back to a TV now.

Is this any better than the TV equivalent available at Costco under $300?
That 60W USB-C power delivery is worth $60 by itself, maybe more to some people. Imagine that -- true plug and play.

USB-C aside, it's anyone's guess (no thorough reviews on the panel itself).

This monitor supports Picture By Picture that will enable you to simultaneously present 4 computers as 4 separate and independent 1080p screens. Not very useful for home users, but for traders, network/security operation centers or anywhere else you need to watch up to four independent hd definition video sources at the same time i.e 4 monitor in one. You can also do picture in picture but that is not that useful to me
Any other monitors that do this? I'm very interested in this feature.

Dell U4320Q is fairly similar in terms of specs and functionalities, but you do pay a $200 premium for the Dell Ultrasharp line. It's back (for me at least) to $711 with stand4small coupon code, but Dell keeps fluctuating the price so it may go back up the next day.

i have a 49" south korean rebranded LG similar to this that i bought 6 years ago and use from 3' away on my desk (it was the only panel back then that didn't cheat by frame skipping as many hdmi's used to) with 4-hdmi 1-dp does quadrant pip and has freesync support. mine has an external ac:dc brick (less heat fatigue on the panel) and it only consumes 70 watts of power while going full tilt. https://i.imgur.com/u8KJ2vr.jpg i setup and sideload many fire4k sticks for friends, so i use the dp for my desktop, and two of the hdmi for my boilerplate stick (i often stream video for enjoyment) and latest one i'm working on. this approach suits my needs so well that should this panel ever die, i'd probably look for something similar, not just buy any 4k tv with fast hdmi ports as others suggest - since i'd probably loose this pip versatility, while some typical 4k tv's ota tuner and lame smarts would be wasted on me. my hope is this old IPS holds up long enough to replace it with some 120mhz refresh under $999 cost 55" OLED panel in a few years. btw, if you are buying op's 43" as a desktop monitor, you may find it's more comfortable to use reading text at 1440p resolution, not 2160p which imho needs 55" for all day text reading.

I compared it directly with a Samsung 43" 4k TV. The thing is, TV nowadays have a good anti-reflective coating. Even though the Samsung is semi-gloss, the glare was not bothering at all. Maybe if you have a light source right in front of it may affect it much more than the matte finish on the LG.

The input lag is barely noticeable in PC mode of the Samsung TV, I found no major difference in how the mouse movement felt. The text on the LG did look better even after fiddling with cleartext on the Samsung TV.

With DP and USB-C I was able to get 4k 60Hz with 4:4:4 10 bit, and along with convenience of the USB hub made it worth the extra money for me.

I have been using a 43 4k for 6 years and I have to say I wouldn't want it split 4 ways like that. I feel like I would want a 48" if that's what I'm trying to do

This is a common feature on large 43" & 49" monitors, and appears on most recent Samsung monitors. LG, DELL and HP are come with these feature as 2x2 while most other monitors do this as two side by side monitors.

This is realty all about how you use your monitor. For gaming using the entire screen as a single monitor is going to be way to go, but if you want to replace multiple monitors with a single monitor or for productivity where you don't want to where and how windows open, side by side is a way to go. Keep in mind if you use side by side option o a single computer, once your cables are connected you can easy switch between single output and multi monitor output by changing your display settings. It is all about your preference, do you want on this monitor single start button or 4?

I just meant 1920x1080 on 1/4 of a 43 is like having 4x 21" monitors. The last time I used a 21" monitor it was 2001.

But is this better than the Walmart $88 4K TV on sale? Lol, I'm just kidding, but you know someone will ask.

Yes you are right, but start button is way far down if you use this monitor as a single monitor. The nice thing is with side by side option you can still span your windows across all of them. Anyhow this is all about preference, mine is to use side by side option.
